It's Not What I Thought
Truth be told, when I first had the opportunity to purchase the Ready to Ride Designer Series Paper, I didn't take it. It wasn't a priority in all the other beautiful papers I had to choose from, so I decided to wait on it. I could always get it later.
I'm not a motorcycle babe, which is why I had decided not to get it right away. However, the second opportunity I had to place a pre-order for products in the January-April 2023, I decided I should get it and use it for something really creative. What that creative thing was, I didn't know yet. But when the paper came, this design was facing the outside, screaming at me in all its glory.
That blurred area on the bottom right is actually the paper shining in the light. The black on the black and gray sides of the paper is a black shiny foil, and it's just gorgeous! I decided it would be best to pair it with the Happiness Abounds Bundle because of the roses, embossed in black on Basic Gray cardstock, and it worked just perfectly.
But the best part of this card I made during What's Up! Stampers on Wednesday was the fun fold...an arrow fold or arrowhead card.
It's even cute when you open it up, right?
You can find the list of supplies I used to create this card - along with links to the products in my online store - at teh bottom of this blog post. In the meantime, the arrow fold card is not as difficult as it looks. You can use this template to score your 4 1/4" x 11" card base:
The 4" x 5 1/4" Designer Series Paper should be cut twice like this.
You can see me put this card together in my video from What's Up! Stampers? on Wednesday. However, I also made an arrowhead/arrow fold card for my Twelve Projects of Christmas series on YouTube - this one from 2020. It's such a beautiful card with this perfect fun fold! And I'm telling you...the paper makes the card. Am I right?
Watch me make this card below, and you can read about it in my original 2020 blog post here:
I know you love fun fold cards as much as I do! Enjoy these beauties and try a arrow fold card...even with paper you thought was one thing but found out it's another. You know you want to! :)
